acupressure and myofascial release are getting more and more popular in yin yoga and yoga in general. as it becomes more popular, weird and just plain wrong claims are being made on social media about what massaging or placing massage balls on these places will do.   

in this short episode, i talk about claims like these are erroneous, even dangerous because they leads yoga teachers to make spurious claims about the power of acupressure.

massaging these places is actually really great, but not for the reasons claimed.
